More Fun With Mug Shots!

When I first glanced at this mug shot of director Gus Van Sant (who was booked for DUI in Oregon yesterday), I thought, "Oh, no! Mr. Carlin's been arrested!" Mr. Carlin, who was played by Jack Riley, was my favorite character on one of my all-time favorite TV programs, "The Bob Newhart Show." There really is an amazing resemblance.


Gus Van Sant

Jack "Mr. Carlin" Riley

He looked even more Van Sant-y back in the '70s in his Mr. Carlin dark hairpiece, but this was the best picture I could find. If anyone is a Newhart-o-phile and/or operates a Mr. Carlin shrine, please send in a better photo.

He kind of reminds me of what Rollins would look like old and frail.
